Cecil Skotnes and Hamilton Budaza – Freedom, 1995

Cecil Skotnes (1926-2009), Hamilton Budaza (1958-)
Freedom (1995)
Coloured engraved wood panels; Acrylic & varnish on wood / 2535 x 2780 mm
CCAC #0240

Donated by the artists in 1995

This was the first artwork donated to the CCAC. Skotnes invited Budaza to collaborate on creating a tribute to democracy. The central panel by Skotnes shows a figure reaching for the sky; the birds, hands and faces by Budaza similarly heralds the new dawn in 1994. It is one of the CCAC’s most confident and optimistic works.
